You are an energetic self-starter that manages your own work in a structured way. You like to be in a fast-paced environment where you’ll do everything from high to low and with many projects going on at the same time. You also like having many different touching points within and outside the organisation and you have great communication and relationship building skills.

Most importantly, you have the personality to fit a somewhat crazy, fun work environment where we believe in color and playfulness, a place where you can expect the unexpected and you are a source of creative weirdness. 

We would love to hear from you as soon as possible since we’re going through applications continually!
